— Forecasters are predicting the first freeze of the season in much of central and southeast Arkansas late Monday night into Tuesday.

The National Weather Service issued a freeze warning that’s effective until 8 a.m. Tuesday.

Forecasters say freezing temperatures are expected overnight because of the combination of cold high pressure, calm winds and a clear sky.

Temperatures are expected to dip below freezing after midnight Tuesday.

The freeze warning is in place for Conway south to Monticello, including the cities of Hot Springs, Little Rock and Pine Bluff.

A separate freeze warning is in effect for Crawford, Franklin and Sebastian counties in western Arkansas. Forecasters say temperatures could drop to the upper 20s overnight.
